2017 RMB menus different or missing

IT recently installed 2017 SP1. They indicated it is an upgrade not a new install so it essentially replaced the 2016 on my box.

I backed up my settings before the install, restored them after.

I am having a difficult time with the transition due to the way that I work and the changes to the menus when I RMB.

The biggest issue I have is in a model I RMB in the tree and the menu is not at all what I expect to see. The functionality I am expecting is gone.

For example, I have a model with equations. I used to RMB on the equations folder and had an option to edit the equations. Now I get:

Roll to Previous

Document Proporties

Hide/Show Tree Items

Collapse Items

I used to get these if I clicked in an open area in the tree but not a specific item in the tree.

I don't have any idea how to get to my Equations now.

In the past I could RMB on an extrusion, for example, and get an icon to edit the feature, edit the sketch,  edit the sketch plane, etc... I see this is now a Left Click thing.

I can't see how that is helpful.

In a drawing I could RMB on the drawing icon and get the icon to access the sheet proporties. That menu is missing as well.

I could come up with many more examples but suffice to say, I'd just like to get back to working.

I would at least like access to the missing information. Some of the RMB menu changes actually add to the clicks I have to make.


Is there a setting to get the menus that are missing back? How do I access my equations?


EDIT - Of the four of us in my department, I am the only one with this issue.
